SPLIT ROCK FILMS was founded in 2010 with the assertion that our lives and our dreams are to be lived out loud, in full color, all around us and in the present moment. That our survival is dependent on putting more attention on beautiful and joyful things in the world. That the more we recognize ourselves in everyone, the better the world is.
